The palatial Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) of Valencia dominates the square, and its bells chime out the hours. Surrounding the plaza are other buildings from the city's golden age, such as the Correos (the main post office). In the center of the plaza, a fountain is surrounded by flower stalls with all the colors, sizes, varieties imagineable. This is a good starting point from which to visit Valencia's old quarter or today's most fashionable shops.

This is one of the sites to visit in downtown Valencia, along with Plaza de la Reina (where the Cathedral stands) and the Mercat Central. This Plaza is very big with nice fountains. When we visited at the end of December, there were a lot of attractions for Xmas including a small skating rink

The central fountain is far from epic. However, make sure that your camera battery is fully charged to capture images of the facades of the surrounding buildings.

Stayed in Valencia for a short holiday around New years Eve. Especially that evening was amazing. Location is great because of the nice buildings (post center, town hall).

Beautiful, elegant square. Full of Christmas atmosphere as well as the shops & cafes round the square. Amazing architecture of the old buildings around this historic plaza. So impressive I came back the next day in the morning to see it again in daylight. Worth a visit to see.

This Plaza is a seminal part of Valencia's culture. It is a huge square full of cafes, restaurants and shops. Wonderful occasion to admire superb architecture, facades, taste local cuisine or shopping.

The Plaza de Ayuntamiento is a beautiful plaza with stunning buildings and a lovely fountain. On a nice day you can sit and take in the views with a lovely relaxed atmosphere around. There are lots of bars and cafes around to enjoy while you take in the scenery.

Beautiful square with magnificent buildings like the Town Hall, Central Post Office, Generalli and others, with a fountain, trees and flowers sellers. Good idea start the visit to the city center from Plaza del Ayuntamiento, but first of all take a table in one of the many bars and cafés, have something to drink or eat, relax and enjoy the...
